If there were any lingering doubts as to the veracity of SCOs claims,
the following ought to put them to rest:

Summary: SCO does not own what they claim to have bought from Novell.

SCO's Big Lie

Summary: Perens editorial on the above announcement

Now, just supposing this does not cause a dismissal or counter suit,
check out Eric Raymond's point by point evisceration of their claims.

"Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect 
liberty when the Government's purposes are beneficent. Men born 
to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their 
liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty 
lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but 
without understanding." 
-  Supreme Court Justice Louis Brandeis, Olmstead v. U.S. (1928)
